    It's a REPUBLIC.

    BTW: It's nationalist not national. One could say nationalist are nativist. You know, America first. America # 1.

    Have you ever read the Progressives Dillingham Commission report to Congress ?
    True, why are we always trying to export democracy? I mean I know we're really not its just pretend but, democracy?

    Hey Shrub

    You are living in a place where you were able to talk to those who were a lot older than you and I who were living in Europe during the 1920's and 30's. How big was the "Jewish problem" in Europe back then in France, Poland, Czechoslovakia, etc. back then ? I've heard that anti semitism had a larger presence in Poland than in Germany during that era and France wasn't to far behind Germany.

    Jews have always been targeted in Europe for hundreds of years.

    I sure am not trying to export democracy. I have realised that some people in the world aren't prepared for democracy or living in a republic.

    The Middle East and Africa are perfect examples.

    Come to think of it, even Mexico.

    That's exactly what I was going to say, what gives ?

    I haven't read "Mein Kampf" in over forty years. May have to read it again.

    So what say you ? What's your take on this ?


    >" You won’t see Adolf Hitler peering back at you from the featured display tables at Barnes & Noble any time soon. But browse the most popular e-book stores these days and Der Führer’s mug is seemingly unavoidable. For a year now, his magnum manifesto has loomed large over current best-sellers on iTunes, where at the time of this writing two different digital versions of Mein Kampf rank 12th and 15th on the Politics & Current Events chart alongside books by modern conservative powerhouses like Sarah Palin, Charles Krauthammer and Glenn Beck.

    In fact, all seven of Beck’s books trail Herr Hitler’s nearly century-old tell-all, which consistently holds its own against new e-blockbusters like Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, This Town by Mark Leibovich, and Nate Silver’s The Signal and the Noise

    Mein Kampf hasn’t made The New York Times nonfiction chart since its U.S. release in 1939, the same year Germany invaded Poland, and its print sales have fallen steadily ever since. But with a flood of new e-book editions, Hitler’s notorious memoir just clocked a banner digital year. One 2012 English-language version is currently the number one Propaganda & Political Psychology book on Amazon. Another digital selection is a player in the Globalization category..."<

    Continue -> A "Mein Kampf" Resurgence, Thanks to Amazon's Kindle
    I'd guess that it's morbid curiosity more than anything else. It's like owning a copy of the "Human Centipede" or watching "Two Girls One Cup."

    It's the kind of train wreck that you simply can't look away from.

    A Republic does not have to have democracy

    This is true and it's still going on.

    You know, that didn't occur to me. So you speculate that "the left" is reading up and preparing to exterminate the jews?
    OMG!! Apacherat nailed it. The Jews in New York are planning to commit mass suicide. LOL.
